The Four Basic Questions of the Observer

There is no doubt that in the self work to develop and awaken the consciousness there is a great importance to establish a responsible Observer.
Without the Observer (which means ‘I am not involved’, observation and reporting) the danger to identify with positive or negative aspects is very dangerous. Dangerous for those who start with this journey and he has a little bit of consciousness, a little bit of truth. The combination between on one hand a continuation of identification, and on the other hand to hold consciousness truth and knowing, can bring a person into a personal and psychological crash.
And if he didn’t begin with his journey, then continuing identifying will ground him on the personal level and will avoid any development of consciousness.
So how do you establish an active Observer? One that won’t go to sleep whenever he wants?
Well, you can make a list of questions which are very important to ask yourself, so you will make sure there is no beginning of identification, stress or doubt. But it can be that this list while pile because of updating it, or that producing a knowing from the last identification is too complicated. Therefore I built 4 basic questions. You can print them nicely on cards and put them on all kinds of places; in a drawer, in your agenda, in the car, etc.
You have to understand that these questions are supposed to cover dead areas, regarding the awareness of the person towards what is happening in him. And in fact, most areas are dead, because of constant identification.
The person doesn’t have a right distance to understand what is happening. Asking these questions is supposed to keep a part in you awake, so the old/sleepy parts will not destroy the little consciousness you have or you wish to build. Asking these questions id for maintain the small consciousness army you have.
The questions are divided into four sections: the emotional, the physical, the mental and the social.
A On the emotional level
* What is the level of my emotions?
* What is the state of my emotions, how do I feel?
* What kind of emotion do I have inside of me?
* Did my emotions pass the 30% limit? Did they pass the limit regarding the heat and the volume?
* What is the percentage of the negative emotions?
* How easily I get fast or angry? Or exited?
* How much inner quiet there is inside me?
B. On the physical level
* where is my gravity point?
* what is heavy in me, what is light?
* Do I have any tinkling, scratches, tiredness or extra energy?
* What is the state of my eyes? Are they out, or deep in the holes? Are they narrowed? Closed? Scattered?
* What about my hands, are they like fists? Are they crossed? Are they drumming? Are they loose?
*My posture and the way I sit, is it loose? Is it straight, or it just like thrown puppet?
Is it tight?? Is my chest outwards or inwards?
*Are my legs spread or closed?
In short: what does my body language say about my state?  How much am I fast or hot if I look at my motorics and movements. All these things say something and you should produce a knowing; make an interpretation, whether you should open a consciousness book, or consult a teacher or use your common sense.
C. On the mental level
* What am I thinking about?
* How much of my thoughts are about me?
* How much of them are negative?
* What is the gravity point of my thoughts?
* How my thoughts are scattered? Male-like? Intense, strained (when you force yourself to think)
D. On the social level
* What is my attitude towards the others?
* What am I transmitting?
* What am I projecting?
* What is the level of my tolerance towards the other?
* am I creating a dialogue or a monologue, am I actively listening?
* Do I want to talk with people at all? And if yes, with who and what about?
* what is the level of support or objection that am I transmitting right now? Or transmitted in the last conversation?
* Is it easy to get along with me lately? If not, why not?
These 4 questions are regarding the emotions, the body, the thoughts and the other. Mapping these 4 should lead to a conclusion towards the danger of going from the vector of North South in to the vector of the West – East.
You should preferably by handwriting, in a special notebook, write a few lines of interpretation (second pulse), and conclusion (third pulse).
